“Barrett-Jackson has consistently been the leading automotive auction for premium American muscle and sports cars,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “We were the first in our industry to recognize the future collectability of American muscle cars and now both original and Resto-Mod versions are the core of collections worldwide. We continue to offer the finest examples of these timeless American vehicles as seen amongst our early consignments for Las Vegas, many of which bear the iconic Bowtie brand.”
The 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Split-Window (Lot #733) underwent a no-expense-spared body-off restoration using only correct manufacture’s parts by Andy Cabral in 2019. Until its restoration, the two-time NCRS Top Flight champion was in storage since the mid-1980s.
